I’ve got to start off with some bad news first. The bad news is that there will be distractions every single day. Ok, now that we’ve got that out in the open, let’s talk about how you can deal with them so that you can still increase your productivity!
First off – watch the video above to get some actionable tips on the ways you can deal with outside distractions in your life by being proactive. The bottom line is that you need to take steps in order to help others reduce their distractions and there are several ways you can help yourself and others to start respecting your time.
One of the most important ideas is to let others know when they can expect responses from you. Along with this goes the idea of respecting your own time. If you don’t respect the times you set up to get work done, how do you expect others to feel about it?
In future videos I’ll be talking about additional ways you can reduce distractions, but this first step is critical and needs to be taken seriously for anything else to work well!
